Analysis of the Haiku structure

jars filled with buttons
a journal
the things she left behind

des pots remplis de boutons
un journal
les choses qu'elle a laissées

Juxtaposition de deux élements, une courte liste L1, L2, mimant le peu de choses restant d'une personne. Ce haïku est marqué par l'inéluctabilité du Temps, un archétype majeur. L'idée que les boutons ont été collectés au fil des années déploie ce haïku dans la durée et l'Imaginaire.


death memories

Structure of this haiku.

Used techniques :

* avis - Opinion given by the author.
The author tells his/her views or an explanation. The speech is not neutral at the first level of reading/writing. This is not a haiku where the author explains to the reader what he or she should understand, usually completed and of no interest. Here, the author gives an indication that is part of the elements of the discourse in addition to the others and that is not a redundancy (redundancy, precision, explanation).

* mémoire - Memory active element.
The driving force behind this type of haiku seems to be a memory that reappears.

* archetype - Active archetypes.
Active presence of archetypes that have determined relationships between images. These archetypes are structures that have aggregated seeds (meanings) and are patterns inherited from the collective unconscious. These are the models that we use to organize our perception of the World.

* juxtaposition - Juxtaposition.
Use of images placed side by side to create an effect superior to that of each separate image. It is not a resonance effect as in similarity but rather a composition effect as in a painting or still life.

As the juxtaposed images have no or very few common semes, they compose a new global image in relation to its components.

* S21 - Caesura between L2 and L3.
Caesura between L2 and L3.

Archetypes and dialectics

* A_Mort - Death.

Contexte de mort (deuil, décès, cimetière...) ou pulsion de mort (guerre, violence...).

* A_Temps - Time.
